Approach cont’d: Stages and Deliverables

The deliverables, reviewers and authorisers as detailed here, form the basis of the 'Product Descriptions' that are mandated by SSADM and PRINCE2.

The six main stages appropriate to the feasibility study are listed here and over the next two pages.

Stage 1, Investigate Current System

The deliverable for this stage is a report that documents the current system, warts and all. The document will comprise:

  • Current Physical Dataflow Model
  • Logical Data Model
  • User Catalogue
  • List of issues with current system
  • List of current IT systems supporting in-scope processes

Review and sign-off

Review of the document will be carried out by contributors (their contribution only), the Project Manager and the ambassador business representative (aka Ambassador User).

Authorisation (sign-off) of the document will be provided by:

  • Lou Skannon, Sales Operations Manager
  • Seenya Cumming, Sales and Marketing Director
  • Juno Howmutsch, Financial Director
  • Pylem High, Ambassador User

Stage 2, Define Required System

This will be done at a high level, leaving the more detailed aspects to the full study, once the phased approach selected has been agreed by the Board.

The deliverable for this stage is a report that documents the required logical system (i.e. solution independent). The document will comprise:

  • Logical Dataflow Model
  • Logical Data Model
  • Requirements Catalogue
  • Major Dialogues
  • User Roles Catalogue

Review and sign-off

Review of the document will be carried out by contributors (their contribution only), the Project Manager and the Ambassador User.
